Sing Great Country Favorites
MGM, 1964. Sealed
An odd pairing of these performers but it actually works pretty well. Francis is convincing in the country mode and even though Williams was only 15 at the time this was recorded he sounds like quite a mature musician and singer. Some of the songs have some light orchestral backing and the great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 40s/1950s/1960s. Used
25 tracks in all! CD

Embraceable You
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1970s. Used
Great 70s live work from Sarah Vaughan – material that easily stands alongside her best for the Pablo label at the same time, but which is far more obscure overall! The notes on the CD aren't much – and obviously help enforce the obscurity of the sessions – but we can say that ... CD

Call My Blues
Night Train, Late 40s. Used

Bittersweet
Focus (Japan), 1964. Used
Here's a rare one from Carmen – a beautifully understated session recorded for the tiny Focus label, done with spare and soulful backings from Norman Simmons, who leads the album's small combo on the backing. Tracks are nice and mellow – very different than some of the later work ... CD

Anette Hanshaw Sings
Alpha, 1926/1927. Used

Sony/Bridge (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold
A totally wonderful little record that's every bit as sexy as you might guess from the cover – and which also has some of the groovy French elements you might expect from the title! The set's got this slinky, erotic vibe that's almost in Serge Gainsbourg territory – save for the fact ... CD

Point Of View
P-Vine (Japan), 1964/1990s. New Copy
An incredible treasure from a lost vocal jazz genius – the little-known Bobby Cole, every bit as great a singer as he was a songwriter, very unusual for the time! Bobby was probably best remembered as the house pianist at Jillys, but at the time of this 1964 recording, he was poised to ... CD

Real Gone, 1957/1963. New Copy 2 CDs
Excellent work from Nat King Cole – a set of rare television performances that offer up a much greater side of his charms than some of his studio records for Capitol! The fidelity on most tracks is pretty great – and many numbers feature Nat talking a bit as he introduces the songs, ... CD

Mercury/Five Four (UK), 1954. New Copy
A key link in the early career of Blossom Dearie – and a fab album of jazzy vocal tracks throughout! Before Blossom recorded some of her 50s sides for Verve in the US, she was living in France and working with The Blue Stars – a cool male/female jazz vocal group that went onto become ... CD

If You Go Away
Epic, Late 60s. Near Mint-

Sweetheart Tree
Mercury, Mid 60s. Sealed
A unique album – in that it represents some unusual London sessions from Johnny Mathis – material recorded in the UK with different arrangers than usual – including Tony Osborne, Alyn Ainsworth, and Allyn Ferguson – all of whom help give Mathis a slight change of flavor here! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Discovery, 1981. Near Mint-
While not as funky as some of her other records for Discovery, this tasty session of vocal tracks still has Lorez singing in a beautifully soulful style, of the type that she's finally getting recognition for these days! The lady has always been one of our favorite vocalists, and she's got some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Craft
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good
Chris' Craft is a great one here – beautifully simple and straightforward jazz vocals, served up at a level that few other singers can match! The album's one of our favorites from Connor's classic years with Atlantic – as it's got a mellow, moody approach that's filled with the darker ... LP, Vinyl record album

Calendar Girl
Liberty, 1956. Very Good Gatefold
One of Julie London's wildest albums – and one of her sexiest too! The record has Julie running through the calender – singing a song a month, dedicated to January, February, March, and so on – a really great concept for a record like this, in ways that set the album apart from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Onda Nueva – New Wave
Columbia, 1971. Near Mint-
A swirling batch of easy groovers – the light and lively orchestrations of Aldemaro Romero, augmented by lead guitar from Charlie Byrd! The sound is Latin-inflected with a soaring finish – part 60s easy, part bossa-inspired orchestration, with touches of Italian soundtrack styles as ... LP, Vinyl record album
